I’m posting in this forum because it’s not something I would want to hang on my wall but it does display a somewhat unusual behavior that I thought others might be interested in and hoperfully comment about their experiences.
Crows are almost as common here as gulls so I’ve seen a lot of interesting behaviors from them over the years. I have never witnessed them actually killing something larger than an insect or an egg at most. In this case this small fish was stranded in a shallow pond by the retreating tide and this crow jumped on it, pinned it down and proceeded to peck it to death while it flopped like crazy (as seen in this photo). The other crow joined in and very soon the fish was dead and they ate it.
Just wondering if others had witnessed a crow taking on and killing a live animal as large as this (relative to their size).
